Prison Song
written and performed by Graham Nash
from "Wild Tales", 1973
transcribed by Peter Eybert
(Capo 3)
One day a [Am]friend took me aside
and said, "I have to [Dm]leave you.
For buying [Am]something from a friend
They say I have done [Em]wrong.[E7]
For pro[Am]tecting the name of a man
they say I'll have to [Dm7]leave you.
So now I'm [Am]bidding you fare[Em]well for much too [Dm7]long.[Am]
And here's a [Am]song to sing for every [Dm7]man inside.
If he can [Am]hear you sing it's an open [Em]door.[E7]
There's not a [Am]rich man there who couldn't [Dm7]pay his way
and buy the [Am]freedom, that's a [Em]high price for the [Dm7]poor.[Am]
[Am(9)]Kids in Texas, [Dm7(6)]smoking grass, [Am(9)]ten year sentence, [Em]comes to [E7]pass.
[Am(9)]Misdemeanor [Dm7(6)]in Ann Arbor, [Am(9)]ask the judges [Em]why?[E7]
Another [Am]friend said to her kids
I'm gonna have to [Dm]leave you
For selling [Am]something to the man
I guess I did [Em]wrong.[E7]
And although I [Am]did the best I could
I'm gonna have to [Dm7]leave you.
So now I'm [Am]kissing you fare[Em]well for much too [Dm7]long.[Am]
And here's a [Am]song to sing for every [Dm7]man inside.
If he can [Am]hear you sing it's an open [Em]door.[E7]
There's not a [Am]rich man there who couldn't [Dm7]pay his way
and buy the [Am]freedom, that's a [Em]high price for the [Dm7]poor.[Am7]
